Pretty much any brand you can think of. They even have a small room with a wall where you can hit with a frame and see how it feels. I highly recommend you take a taxi out there and see for yourself if you have time.
Siam Pa-ra-gon is an expensive shopping mall, very new. The tennis dept there may fill your needs and it is much more convenient as it is right at the Siam BTS stop.
I'll be leaving for the airport in 6 hrs, I know it's a bit rush to ask, but can anyone tell me which is the closest BTS station to FBT? Many Thanks.
